Last weekend, we checked-in to Hotel Jen Tanglin for a staycation. It is located within the quieter end of Orchard, along Cuscaden Road (very near Botanic Gardens). Formerly known as Traders Hotel, it has undergone an extensive $SGD45 million makeover in 2015, and now reflects a modern functional design concept to meet the needs of today’s modern travellers.
When the first Hotel Jen in the world opened in Singapore Orchardgateway in 2014, I was SO impressed by the quality of its rooms as well as its affordable prices. If you are looking for a budget-friendly hotel along Orchard Road that is extremely convenient with a beautiful swimming pool, Hotel Jen Orchardgateway is definitely a great choice. Check out my previous review of Hotel Jen Orchardgateway’s Club Deluxe Room.
Hotel Jen is a new brand of fresh, friendly and fuss-free mid-range hotels by Shangri-La International Hotel Management Ltd. Some of you may be aware that there are two Hotel Jens in Singapore. Now, let’s check-out the second Hotel Jen – that’s Hotel Jen Tanglin. This 4-star hotel offers amazing staycation packages starting from just S$176++ per night! Find out more. 😀
We stayed in a Superior Room that is cosy and chic, complete with everything we need for a relaxing stay. After the extensive transformation, the room looks like brand new (nothing like the previous room at all). Totally amazing! 😆
Featuring a warm, playful and earthly interior, the Superior Room is 25 sqm in size and it comes with a super comfortable king-size (or twin) bed, a smart en-suite bathroom (no bathtub though), a mini fridge, as well as panoramic view of the surroundings.
I particularly like the tawny-leather headboards with brass lamps, and textured accent wallpaper with motifs such as fish or bicycles. At the opposite end, there’s a white faux-brick feature wall with a sleek TV mounted on it.
